Sculptor Paige Bradley - "From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies? Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically ‘un-contained’?
Focusing on tensions and liberations in my work, I feel most of our emotions are locked into a existential cocoon. My sculptures show the human race as a singular individual searching for connection but finding only alienation.”
